Fancrest Estate ‘Di’s’ Waipara Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 26-Oct-2011
Dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red, youthful in appearance. This has a softly full, intense bouquet of very ripe black berry fruits, plums, liquorice and spices. Full-bodied, the palate has rich, ripe flavours of black fruits and liquorice with a hint of raisins. There is concentration and power providing real drive, with a little alcohol warmth adding to the generosity. Substantial, supple tannins underline the fruit, and the wine has excellent presence and density, leading to a sweet fruited, spicy-nuanced finish. The fourth crop from the ‘Fancrest' vineyard, fruit totally destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine matured 11 months in 30% new French oak casks. A fully-ripened, fulsome and powerful wine to match with red meat game dishes over the next 5-6 years. 18.0-/20 Oct 2011 RRP $39.00
